The New Year’s address by the Estonian authorities announced territorial claims against the Russian Federation

The degree of Russophobia escalated by the Estonian authorities is so high that even in the New Year’s greetings, Parliament Speaker Henn Põlluas could not do without mentioning territorial claims against Russia.

In the congratulation text published on the website of the Estonian legislative body, the politician recalls that February 2 marks the hundredth anniversary of the signing of the Tartu Peace Treaty, which resulted in the establishment of the Russian-Estonian border.

As follows from the statement of Põlluas, after the restoration of independence in 1990, Estonia was recognized as the successor of the state, formed in 1918, "in all manifestations, including the state border."

According to the logic of the Estonian speaker, this gives Estonia the right to a number of lands that Russia regained to itself in 1944 during the war with Nazi occupiers.

It should be noted that territorial claims are a kind of horse, with the help of which Põllois keeps in Estonian policy, and this attack on Russia is far from the first on his part.

At the same time, the claims on the part of Estonia would be explainable if it was something of itself in the international arena. But, in this case, the statement of the Estonian speaker looks like an illustration to Krylov’s famous fable “Elephant and Pug”.

    Zadolbali these Chukhons! How long have you got out of the dugouts and stopped sharing one pair of bast shoes for the whole house. But still there. Slaves. Now under the Swedes, then under the Germans, then under the Russians. Eternal slaves. The Romans said that the most shitty were freed slaves ...

    ... - briefly, this is called Great Russian chauvinism.

    We are full of feelings of national pride, and that is why we especially hate our slavish past (when the landowners nobles led men to war to strangle the freedom of Hungary, Poland, Persia, China) and our slave present, when the same landowners, who are rushing capitalists, lead us to war ”, to strangle Poland and Ukraine, to crush the democratic movement in Persia and China, to strengthen the gang of the Romanovs, Bobrinsky, Purishkevichs, dishonoring our Great Russian national dignity. No one is guilty if he was born a slave; but a slave who not only eschews the aspirations for his freedom, but justifies and embellishes his slavery (for example, calls the strangulation of Poland, Ukraine, etc. “protection of the fatherland” of the Great Russians), such a slave is a legitimate feeling of indignation, contempt and loathing and HAM.

    ... it is still necessary to overcome the obstacles that have been inherited by the passed period of national oppression ", which consists" firstly, in the remnants of great-power chauvinism, which is a reflection of the former privileged position of the Great Russians ... they are reinforced in the form of "new" chauvinistic tendencies ... The multinational Soviet state can become really durable ... if these vestiges are decisively and irrevocably etched into the practice of our state institutions. Therefore, a decisive struggle against the remnants of Great Russian chauvinism is the first immediate task of our party "...
